Rising Hell is a surprisingly good game that took a simple level design idea and made it work with the roguelite genre. If you’re into demon slaying to heavy metal and enjoy the roguelite loop then this will be a title to pick up. However, I do feel there may be some longevity issues due to the design and lack of variety in the base gameplay. Nevertheless, I never hit the stale wall, but I can see it for folks who struggle or dedicate heavy time into the rogue genre.
Rising Hell is a great game for roguelike/lite fans, but newcomers should also consider keeping an eye on it. It caters to both audiences through de-emphasizing the genre's randomness. This may turn off hardcore players that love an intense challenge, but that's what the Agony levels exist for. The adrenaline-fueled metal soundtrack mixed with inspiration from classic sprite-based games is the cherry on top.
